On the Bravo kitchen-competition series Top Chef , the cheftestants are charged with creating cutting-edge food on the spur of the moment. Two weeks after his win on Season 7, Kevin Sbraga had us out to his real kitchen - in the childhood Willingboro home he shares with his pastry-chef wife, Jesmary, daughter Jenae, 5, and newborn son Angelo. Mealtime at the Sbragas' place is nothing fancy, and the Top Chef, 31, cooks on an electric stovetop. One of his favorite dishes is a one-pot creation of steamed clams and Italian sausage on top of chickpeas, perfect for Sunday after church.

Cooler temperatures, a crisp edge to the air, and changing colors in the landscape all say, "Autumn's here. " Appetites lean toward more substantial dishes, including warming soups, to fortify us for the winter months ahead. The autumn soup recipes that follow use the late season's bounty and the abundance of cool-weather crops during fall harvest. A homemade vegetable broth gives these meatless soups excellent flavor and body. If necessary, however, they can be made with store-bought broth or water.

You can whip up a quick Southwestern dinner without all the fat found in tacos and burritos by making quesadillas. Though quesadillas usually are served as an appetizer, these are large and filling enough for supper. Jicama, a root vegetable with a thin brown skin and white crunchy flesh, can be served raw or cooked; both ways retain its crisp water chestnut-like texture. If jicama is hard to find, sub a green salad in the meal. Quick Quesadillas Makes 2 servings 1 teaspoon minced garlic 2 tablespoons diced red onion 1/2 cup drained, sliced canned pimento 1/2 cup rinsed and drained canned pinto beans Salt and freshly ground black pepper 4 8-inch flour tortillas 1/2 cup diced low-fat ham 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese 1. Puree garlic, onion, pimento, and beans in a food processor.

I'm always trying to find new and unexpected ways to use ingredients. So as I started thinking about how to give meat loaf a healthy makeover, I wondered if I could substitute kamut cereal for high-carb, low-nutrition bread crumbs? The answer turned out to be a delicious yes! Kamut, a trade name for khorasan wheat, is one of the so-called ancient grains that have become popular alternatives to wheat. It has 20 to 40 percent more protein, and is higher in good fats, vitamins and minerals than wheat.
